Workout, FitnesskellypuryearComment

Happy Friday, friends!! Last week, I shared a killer lower-body workout using Ez bars and this week it's time for some upper-body burn! That's right, I'm back with another killer Ez bar workout that you can perform anytime, anywhere!! I love a quick, yet effective upper-body workout and I am fairly certain that you will love this week's Free Fitness Friday workout!

This week's Free Fitness Friday Workout: Upper-body Ez Bar Workout

 Exercise #1: Bent-over Ez Bar Row

Exercise #1: Bent-over Ez Bar Row

This workout is very simple to set up (all you need is 1 light-to-moderate weight Ez Bar and 1 moderate-to-heavy weight Ez Bar) and can be done in anytime frame that you have (anywhere from 15-30 minutes), but should be done at a fast-pace and with minimal rest. You can even fit this workout in at the end of a workout for an extra calorie burn! Complete all exercises in a row for 1 round, rest for 1 minute, then begin with the first exercise for round 2. Complete as many rounds as you can in the time you have! (Try for 4-6 rounds!)

As always, be sure to warm up before beginning the first round and cool down and stretch when you are finished.

Round 1:

  • 15 Bent-over Ez bar rows (mod-to-heavier weight Ez bar)
  • 10 Ez bar push-ups (mod-to-heavier weight Ez bar)
  • 10 Ez bar reverse curl into shoulder press (light-to-mod weight Ez bar)
  • 15 sit-ups holding Ez bar over chest (light-to-mod weight Ez bar)

Check out this short video to see how each exercise is performed and to ensure that you have proper form throughout each exercise!

That's it! Quick and simple, yet super effective in burning some serious calories and building some lean, strong muscle in your upper body! Trust me, this workout will be done and over before you know it and you will be ready to take on the day and the weekend ahead!

I know I will be ready for this weekend as I will be back home celebrating with friends and family at my best friend's wedding!! But first, it's workout time!

Have a great workout and a wonderful weekend ahead!
